The Cooperative African Newspapers Project is an initiative to enhance the utilization of newspapers as a source of information about Africa. The project explores issues related to the preservation of this ephemeral and fragile form of publication and access to contents through traditional and new technologies.
The core of the Cooperative African Newspapers Project is the African Newspapers Union List (AFRINUL), a centralized electronic database of holdings information for newspapers (all formats and all languages) published in sub-Saharan Africa. AFRINUL currently consolidates holdings information for collections in North America. It is a retrospective resource, and cannot accept updated holdings information at this time.
